Obituary of Roseann Hunnewell
Roseann Hunnewell (Calbi), 61, of Ash, North Carolina – formally of Jackson, NJ for 9 years’ prior passed away on Monday, January 23rd 2023 at home with family. Rose was born in Manhattan, NY and lived in the Bronx, NY until she was the age of 10. Rose moved to Dumont, NJ with her family in 1973. Rose attended Dumont High School where she graduated from in 1979. Rose married her second husband, Donald Hunnewell, on July 2nd of 2002. Roseann is preceded in death by her parents Rita (Boyle), 2022 and Dominick Calbi, 1975 and step-father Richard Scully, 2011. Rose is survived by her husband Donald Hunnewell, children Cristin, Fran (Matt), Nicholas, and Nadia; step-children Douglas (Shilo) and Christopher. As well as her sisters Rita Berardo (John), and Mary Bayles. Grandchildren, Dalton, Brittany, Amelia and step-granddaughter Aurora. Nieces Sara and Ashley and many aunts and cousins with a lot of love to give. Roseann was known for and always will be remembered for her love of cooking and compassion for others. She put every part of herself into all she did and never left a job unfinished. She was strong willed yet kind. A storm of a women with a tender heart - who was never short on a smart comeback. She taught her children to treat others how you would want to be treated but to never let anyone make them feel bad about themselves. She could open the fridge and make a meal fit for a king that could feed a village and there was always room for more at the table. If you even left Rose’s house hungry – it was your own fault. You could find Rose rocking on her front porch during any good storm, basking in the thunder and lighting, followed by her telling us “I’m going to chase a tornado one day”. Rose will be truly missed by all, but make sure to look for her in the next thunderstorm or plate of home cooked food – she’ll be there. As Rose’s sisters, Rita & Mary, will tell you growing up with Rose was never dull…it was always an adventure. It won’t be the same without you Ro. A viewing will be held at White Funeral Home on Thursday, January 26th 2023 at 1PM – 2PM with a Funeral Service to follow from 2PM – 3PM. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the COPD Foundation in Rose’s name at Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Hunnewell family.
